Calf care event in Portlaoise to cover nutrition, health and grass
As the spring-calving season begins farmers will be busy planning ahead. A calf rearing seminar this Wednesday (January 30) is sure to provide up-to-date information for those entering into this busy time on farms.
First up on the night will be Dr. Mark Little – veterinary specialist with Trouw Nutrition. Mark will describe some of the common calf health problems and, most importantly, how to avoid them.
The last speaker of the evening will be Paddy Casey from Target Fertilisers. Paddy will provide practical fertiliser and nutrient management strategies for maximising grass growth.
On the night ruminant nutritionists from J. Grennan & Sons will be available to chat with farmers. JFC will also be displaying its new automatic milk feeder.
